Fast and cost-effective to build
Pre-cast sections of guideway are constructed offsite to allow for exceptionally rapid assembly on location and monorails require shorter platforms and stations, resulting in reduced cost of civil construction.
Seamless integration with buildings and structures
Monorails are ideally suited to dense urban areas, able to operate with a sharp curve radius and steep grades (up to 6%) and running on a light infrastructure and a slim and light guideway structure.
Flexible to meet various operational needs
Configurations range from 2-8 car trains and are can be adapted for capacity from 10,000 to 25,000+ passengers per hour per direction (pphpd).
Optimised delivery and guaranteed system performance
Offered as fully integrated system that includes rolling stock, signalling, infrastructure and services, a turnkey monorail system optimises project execution and guaranteed system performance.
